We had always wondered what lay behind these grand old doors that are so much part of the back streets of French cities. This was a wonderful opportunity to find out and the spacious apartment on the 2nd floor was perfectly placed for our long weekend in Carcassonne. Sally is a lovely hostess with a warm welcome. She offered sound advice on where to park, where to eat and how to access the medieval cite. Her rooms are spacious and comfortable and the breakfast was served in our own private area at any time of our choosing. Fresh fruit, yoghurts, assorted patisserie and jams or honey. Fresh orange and coffee. Magnifique! It is a short 10/15 minute walk to the cite entrance but on our first night Sally advised us just to take a 5 minute walk to the vieux pont and see the ancient walls lit up in all their glory. Very rewarding. Thank you Sally.
